Senior Lecturer in Education and Director of Elementary Education Polly Ulichny was invited to speak to the professional development school for secondary teachers, Scuola Superiore per l’Istruzione Secondaria, and teachers of English in Bologna, Italy last month. Her presentation, Educating Esmeralda Mukabee Chen: Realities and Possibilities of Educating Immigrants in the US, provided an overview of educational practices and policies regarding immigrants in the US to compare with policies being developed at the national level in Italy to address the recent influx of immigrants from diverse cultures and language backgrounds.
